As Heard On Facebook
"Just came home with our daughter after having a long labor. Words cannot express the amount of gratitude for the team at Fletcher Allen. Painted on the walls, I read "One Team, One Purpose, One Patient." Well, we can tell you from experience, they get it done at this hospital. There were so many incredible people involved, and I wish I could name some of them here, but I eventually came to the realization that these people don’t do it for the recognition. Even getting off the elevators, employees with no connection to us whatsoever were there with a smile and an open heart to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Vermont is really a special place, and Fletcher Allen is a really special hospital. Thank you."
